About Us

Established in 1995, Academy for Severe Handicaps and Autism provides education along with a comprehensive set of therapies to individuals with autism spectrum disorders. In over two decades, ASHA has evolved and developed capabilities and expertise to address the different needs of over 500 individuals and their families.  

Mission

We endeavour to render exceptional love, care, hope and educational assistance to children with special needs to help them develop and utilise their potential.

How We Started

Starting with 3 children in a small rented building in Malleshwaram, Bangalore in 1995, today 60 children are undergoing therapy in the day school program.

The Assessment, Training and Guidance Centre, established in 2013 provides assessment services for individuals with autism and learning difficulties. The centre provides counselling, conducts regular parent and professional workshops and is an information centre.

Approach

Each classroom in ASHA has a student teacher ratio of 2:1 to make learning effective. Each child is also a part of group sessions and circle time where social skills are developed. Alongside, we provide additional therapies and activities such as 

  • Speech and Language Therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Technology Intervention 
  • Dance 
  • Music
  • Yoga


With a staff strength of 44 special educators and teachers, personalised attention to each child is ensured.
